Europea and North America R&D Efforts Strengthened with Growing FIB Usage

The global focused ion beam market has been broadly segmented into key geographic regions of North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, The Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. Europe was the leading market for focused ion beam systems usage in 2015, a factor primarily attributed to the high rate of penetration of focused ion beams in the semiconductor industry. Europe also holds a high scope of use for ion beam systems in its high concentration of research organizations, where these instruments hold use in several research and development efforts, such as the development of dual beam focused ion beam systems and the use of focused ion beams with scanning electron microscope. These advancements have allowed the proliferation of the global focused ion beam market in biological science and material science.

North America has also had a high demand for ion beam systems due to the great utility of focused ion beam microscopes in material sciences. The commercial availability of focused ion beam microscopes recently has led to an eruption of research and development projects in the North American studies of material sciences. Focused ion beams are also useful in micromachining and imaging capabilities at the nanometer and micrometer scales. In 2015, over 90% of the revenue generated in the North America focused ion beam market originated from the U.S. and Canada collectively.

LMIS and Gallium Continue Leading Use as Ion Sources in Global Focused Ion Beam Market

By ion sources, the global focused ion beam market can be segmented into gallium, gold, iridium and then a collective segment of unique ion sources, including gas field ionization and liquid metal alloy ions. By revenue, gallium was highly common as an ion source, followed by iridium, in 2015. A lot of focused ion beam systems today are coming equipped with liquid metal ion sources (LMIS) coupled with gallium ions.

Global Focused Ion Beam Market: Overview

The factors which are primarily driving the growth of global Focused ion beam market are increasing application of focused ion beam systems in sample preparation and nanofabrication. Focused ion beam finds a key application in sample preparation as it involves (TEM) transmission electron microscopy on an ultra-thin specimen which is transparent to electrons. Focused ion beam systems are also commonly used in the semiconductor and manufacturing industries as failure analysis equipment. This equipment is used in order to detect the primary cause of failure and prevent its reoccurrence. In addition, increase in demand for ion lithography is playing a significant role in the growth of the global focused ion beam market. The conjoint effect of all these drivers is therefore set to bolster the growth of the global focused ion beam market during the forecast period from 2016-2024.

Focused ion beam systems have been used extensively for more than two decades, most significantly in sample preparation and nanofabrication. Focused ion beam set up is a scientific instrument which resembles a scanning electron microscope or SEM. FIB systems coupled with SEM are used commonly to prepare samples for transmission electron microscope or TEM. Application of Focused ion beams in nano machining is expected to boost the growth of the global Focused ion beam market in the coming years. Focused ion beam etching equipment has shown high potential for a wide range of innovative applications in the field nanotechnology including imaging and precision micromachining. Furthermore, rapid advances in ion sources are expected to offer new growth opportunities for Focused ion beam systems.
